The Summit aims to bring together leading practitioners, professionals, entrepreneurs, academia and thought leaders in the healthcare industry to network and engage in a dialogue to discuss, deliberate, share and address key challenges and opportunities in the next era of healthcare in Asia, with a global perspective.
New and significant demands are being made on the healthcare infrastructure of Asian countries, with the continent expected to be home to 50% of the world population by 2050. The adverse shift in demographics that governments everywhere are facing has created new sets of challenges and opportunities. Governments are trying their utmost to keep pace with rising costs and the new demands of an increasingly affluent population expecting better, cheaper and more responsive healthcare.
The theme of the 2018 Summit: “Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Disruption in Healthcare” witnessed our eminent speakers from across the globe make cutting-edge presentations on the following topics:
1. Shaping Public Healthcare for the Future
2. Embracing Better & Cheaper Healthcare
3. Digital Disruption for Better Healthcare
4. Holistic Wellness for Mind & Body
5. A New Era of Healthy Longevity
A unique feature of this year’s event were the dedicated Entrepreneurship & Innovation Tracks that featured 12 successful entrepreneurs who are tackling world-scale problems facing healthcare today. Held in a break-out fashion with smaller groups, these tracks were an excellent opportunity to learn about their journey and success stories.
The Asian Healthcare Leadership Summit was majorly sponsored by the Victor and William Fung Foundation and organised by IDS Medical Systems Group (idsMED) with the support of its knowledge partner, INK. Other sponsors include WeDoctor China, International Finance Corporation (IFC), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (OCBC), and Mitsubishi Corporation.
The event was attended by more than 500 worldwide participants from the industry including leading medical practitioners, policy makers, business leaders, entrepreneurs, academics and thought leaders from across the globe.
